We believe SAFEGUARD has all the qualities that will make a wonderful sire – pedigree, performance and physique.
A son of the world’s best sire of two year olds (EXCEED AND EXCEL), out of a dam (PRESERVE) who won the Group 1 MRC Sires Produce who is a half-sister to the Group 1 winning sire DENMAN, SAFEGUARD has a Golden Slipper winner in each of his first 4 generations. This remarkable situation has been further enhanced, as the dam of the 2019 Golden Slipper winner KIAMICHI, is a half-sister to the dam of SAFEGUARD, making the Slipper winner a very close relation to him.
SAFEGUARD was undefeated at two, including the Group 3 Kindergarten Stakes a race that has been won by horses such as HALLOWED CROWN, FURNACES and ASTERN all of which have become stallions.
At three he won the Group 3 Vain Stakes (previously won by SEPOY and with the likes of FAST 'N' ROCKING, TOORAK TOFF and STAR WITNESS all placing in the race), before going down narrowly in the Group 2 Danehill Stakes. He continued to race with distinction at stakes level before we purchased him off the track in preparation for the 2015 stud season.
And now his offspring are producing on the track! From a first crop of 30 live foals he has produced two stakes performers in Miss West Coast and Specialism clearly winning the WA 2yo Sires award as well as heading the WA First Season Sire and ranking 7th in the Australian First Season Sires table. Quite an achievement from a relatively small crop of 30 live foals!!
The sales reecord of SAFEGUARD is equally impressive as he averaged $84,000 in Book One of the WA Magic Millions Sales in February 2019, selling 3 lots for six figures.
So whether you are breeding to sell or to race, SAFEGUARD ticks all the boxes!!
SAFEGUARD (AUS) will stand the 2019 season for a stud fee of $8,800 (incl GST) .
Exciting young stallion Safeguard will now stand permanently at Mogumber Park in WA, following the purchase of a 50% share by prominent thoroughbred owner Santo Guagliardo.
In announcing the deal Guagliardo said “I am very excited to be able to expand my breeding interest by obtaining a share in Safeguard, who will continue to stand at Mogumber Park alongside my other stallion Rommel.
